Exploring the City
A revitalized downtown, artsy former industrial areas and creative new restaurants and breweries will have you exploring every inch of Philadelphia.
- Philadelphia has four seasons: cold, snowy winters; hot, sunny summers; and lovely, though less predictable, autumns and springs. Bring season-appropriate, packable layers that mix and match, and a travel umbrella just in case.
- Bring at least one pair of comfortable, flat shoes for walking plus one pair of dressier shoes for evening.
- Finding the right daytime bag is worthy of your attention. Something that goes with everything and leaves your hands free, like a roomy leather tote or sleek backpack — is best for toting your essentials while you’re on the go.
